43 – We Work Hard for No Money

Feb 16, 2015Uncaged Podcast

Today’s podcast is about work, productivity, God’s sovereignty over all, and what happens when we become entitled.


Lazy people are soon poor;
hard workers get rich. Proverbs 10:4

A hard worker has plenty of food,
but a person who chases fantasies has no sense. Proverbs 12:11

Work hard and become a leader;
be lazy and become a slave. Proverbs 12:24

Lazy people want much but get little,
but those who work hard will prosper. Proverbs 13:4

Work brings profit,
but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23

If you love sleep, you will end in poverty.
Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat! Proverbs 20:13

Lazy people consider themselves smarter
than seven wise counselors. Proverbs 26:16


1. Entitlement is not godly.

2. Laziness is not godly.

3. Both often lead to crime or some sort of slavery.

4. Both are an indication of pride or self-centeredness.

5. Hard work = provision and leadership

6. But even when the formulas don’t work, there is God.
